Patrick Muldoon and His Magic Balloon
We often get “sentimental” requests for this 30-minute musical from grown-ups who remember falling in love with it when they were children. This musical journey through our wondrous world and all of its different customs and traditions is led by Patrick Muldoon and Barney Balloon as they take youngsters to Africa (“Happy Hippopotamus”), Egypt (“Who Knows What the Sphinx Thinks”) and Japan (“Cherry Blossom Song”). There is an alternate version of this story that is sung by the Irish-American singer Carmel Quinn, who has appeared on Broadway, television and radio since coming to America in 1954; American audiences fell in love with her, and it is this version that our most sentimental customers request.
Grades K - 7, Duration: 30 minutes
